Why did you start working for Upshift?

I heard about Upshift in September, 2021 after finding it online. I had a baby several months before that and had been home with her. With a young child at home, I could not commit to a full time or part time job that had a set schedule. I needed something that allowed me to choose my own schedule each week so that I could spend time with my kids.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I spend most of my free time with my kids and they keep me really busy. Whether it’s during the week or weekends, there is always some kind of talent show, reading, arts and crafts or other school activity going on. I’m very lucky that Upshift has provided me the ability to spend as much time as possible with my kids while also being able to pick up shifts.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I always say “don’t knock it until you try it” when it comes to new shifts. You may see shifts that seem intimidating but I recommend giving them a try. There are several shifts that I was hesitant about at first but now are some of my favorite ones to work.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked at 10-15 different businesses around the Cincinnati area. I’ve enjoyed all my shifts but If I had to pick a few favorites it would be Great Wolf Lodge, Frisch’s and RPI. All of these locations created a positive and friendly atmosphere. They really welcome you in as if you are one of their own employees and that is a huge boost during a shift.
